Prayers to Remember by Heart

The Sign of the Cross

In the Name

of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit.


Our Father

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.


Apostle's Creed

I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty;
from there He shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.


Act of Contrition

My God,

I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. 

In choosing to do wrong

And failing to do good

I have sinned against YOU

Whom I should love above all things.

I firmly intend with your help,

To do penance and to live as I should.

Jesus suffered and died for us.

In His name, my God, have mercy.


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit

of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Prayer to Our
Guardian Angel

Angel of God 
My guardian dear 
To Whom His love 
Commits me here 
Ever this day (or night) 
be at my side 
To light and guard 
To rule and guide.



Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
We fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins
my Mother;
to thee do we come,
before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer them.

Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry,

poor banished children of Eve:
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit

of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! 


Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael, the Archangel,

defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness

and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl throughout the world

seeking the ruin of souls.


Fatima Prayer

"O My Jesus, forgive us our sins,

Save us from the fires of hell, and

Lead all souls to Heaven,

especially those in most need

of thy Mercy.


The Angelus

LET US PRAY: Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that, we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an Angel, may by His Passion and Cross, be brought to the glory of His Resurrection through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
